Medical Malpractice Lawyer New Jersey In malpractice lawsuits, the injuries you suffer are caused by medical professionals. Establishing medical negligence is done by determining that the defendants had a duty to perform, they failed in their duty, and that you suffered as a result of this. Examples of Medical Malpractice Include: A physician or other healthcare professional failing to read test results A surgeon operating on the wrong body part A physician or other healthcare professional failing to diagnose an illness correctly A physician or other healthcare professional prescribing medications that don’t go together An anesthesiologist administering too much or too little anesthesia A physician or other healthcare professional injuring a baby during delivery A hospital using contaminated instruments.

What is Medical Malpractice?:

What is Medical Malpractice? We expect medical providers to perform their duties with a certain level of skill and professionalism. In other words, we anticipate that they will provide care that follows the standards within the medical community. Medical malpractice is defined as a legal action against a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other medical professional whose conduct has been alleged to be negligent. The patient or person who is bringing the action is called the plaintiff. 1. Poor medical decisions by providers. 2. Errors in treatment, testing, or surgery. 3. Failure to diagnose or properly provide care. 4. Delay of care. 5. Medical equipment misuse or failures.

. Why Hire a Medical Malpractice Attorney ? Everyone makes mistakes. But when doctors, nurses, therapists, or dentists make them, the effects can last a lifetime. Patients have a right to expect that medical procedures will be properly performed. Medical malpractice attorneys represent you if you are injured by a healthcare provider's careless or accidental mistakes. For example, if a doctor leaves behind gauze in your body during surgery, resulting in an infected wound that requires even more surgery, the doctor committed medical malpractice. Medical malpractice attorneys can recognize injuries caused by mistakes; they know the most common mistakes that cause injuries, and they know how to find and present information useful to prove your case. Medical malpractice attorneys also know how much insurance is available if the health care provider is responsible for what happened to you.

Special Requirements in Medical Malpractice Cases :

Special Requirements in Medical Malpractice Cases Medical malpractice cases must be brought soon after the injury. In most states, you must bring a medical malpractice claim fairly quickly -- often between six months and two years, depending on the state. (The time period in which you must bring the lawsuit is called the "statute of limitations.") If you don't file the lawsuit within the specified period of time, the court will dismiss the case regardless of the facts. When the time period starts ticking also depends on the state. In some states, the clock starts when the negligent act occurred; in others, it starts when the patient should have discovered the injury.
